Snow Series~ 18x24" drawing


With an exhaustive precision, I knew what I wanted for this drawing, so instead of ruminating over inspirational peaks and valleys, I took the image already painted in my mind and positioned her on a much grander scale. The bigger, the better, I thought.
Gweneira is a combination of HB/2B pencils, colored pencils, chalk, and oil pastels on medium 18x24" recycled paper. And regardless the fact that I endured scores of painful, little paper cuts while ruining one of the coziest vintage knit sweaters ever in existence- a sweater I shouldn't have been wearing in the studio- I absolutely adore her. Every time I look at the end result, I find myself gravitating more and more towards the notion of a Limited Edition collection, so today I'm starting my second piece of the 'Snow' series.

P.S. The Holiday Swagger-Bag Giveaway is coming!

Oh my god! Bella, this is amazing!
So, so lovely! Things like this makes me really wish I was a little less artistically incapable. Do you do illustrations? X

You have so much talent, Bella! I had no idea you were such a beautiful artist. Sorry to hear about the papercuts - I guess it goes with the saying that all artists suffer for their craft?
Seriously, congrats on a beautiful, beautiful drawing!

Designs by Bella: Vintage Lollipops x Magazzini del Sale Capsule Collection

Last year, Italian designer Graziano Moro of Magazzini Del Sale contacted me about collaborating and designing a five-piece Limited Edition capsule collection for their SS 11 Love Can Change the World t-shirt line. Having never been given such an incredibly surreal opportunity before, you can imagine my absolute surprise... followed by some sort of psychotic jubilation. At the time, I'd only been drawing for about a month, which means the designs you're seeing are some of my very first artworks! Brainstorming endless possibilities, the process began with a series of sketches, clipart graphics, and silhouette collages until I further conceptualized the vision by deciding to submit only my illustrations.  After presenting numerous options, Graziano and the team exclusively selected their top picks... and after several months of diligence, reworking, and constant communication, my artwork was transformed into a beautiful line of ecru shirts forever deemed, Vintage Lollipops x M…
